Hendricken Football Podcast for 10/30/13, Parts 1&2

Soccer Gets Fall Playoff Season off on the Right Foot

With the Hawks' season-ending victory this past Friday afternoon, our guys managed to secure the #6 seed in the state Division I playoffs, and last night they took advantage of that solid placement by defeating Cumberland, 3-1, in opening-round action.

Chris Cambio, Brennan Martin, and Lucas Gesmundo accounted for the Hawks' goals, and Danny Escobar was a rock in the net, racking up five saves while being around the ball every time it came near our goal.  Some of the action from last night's contest can be seen here:

The Hawks now move on to the second round, where they will face North Kingstown on their home field.  As the #3 seed, the Skippers received a bye and were idle in the first round.

Let's hope that some of the momentum our guys have built up here late in the season carries through to Friday night's game at NK.  Let's move to Round #3.

Will Stone Take The Network to Fenway for Game 6?

Another Wednesday....and another edition of one of the staples of The Network's programming lineup, The Stone & Z Show.

Today's show ran the gamut from an extensive discussion of all things NBA (with tonight being opening night for many teams around the league, headlined by a prime matchup between the Heat and the Bulls) and the hometown Boston Celtics, to some of the more interesting developments from Week 8 of the NFL season and the Patriots' win over the Dolphins, to, finally, a discussion of the upcoming Game 6 - and possibly 7 - of the World Series, with The Red Sox now holding a 3 games to 2 advantage.

You can view the entire show in the main Ustream viewer at the top of the page.

We also learned that Stone may be in attendance at Game 6.  Follow him on Twitter (@StoneF1997) for his insights from Fenway.

For every follower he gains, we here at The Network pledge to save one endangered Atlantic Coast Piping Plover.

Do it for the birds.

Just do it.

Hawks' XC Wraps up Outstanding Homecoming Weekend with Class A Varsity & JV State Championships

The pep rally Friday afternoon was certainly a harbinger for the entire weekend.  The excitement that resonated throughout the gym during last period set the table for a clean sweep of the Hawks' athletic slate scheduled for Homecoming Friday and Saturday.

Not only did our football team continue its push through the regular schedule with a convincing 41-21 victory over Portsmouth  on Friday night at Hayden Stadium, but the Hawks' soccer team pre-empted that contest with a 2-0 victory over Woonsocket to secure the #6 seed in the upcoming state playoffs.  Then, as the above tweet points out, the cross-country guys and the JV soccer team did their part as well.

Both LaSalle and Hendricken are accustomed to competing against one another in more athletic venues than they don't, and cross-country is no exception.  The article at MileSplit RI attached to the following tweet does a great job of explaining just how impressive yesterday's 30-34 win over LaSalle for the state title was for our guys.

The varsity guys were paced by first-place finisher senior Colin Tierney (15:32.24), sophomore Tom Grizzetti (4th, 16:16.67), junior Michael Potter (6th, 16:28.88), and senior Colin Manning (7th, 16:31.58).

Quite an impressive showing for our guys in the top ten.

The JV guys did their part as well, posting some stunning performances:

Couple these performances and victories in heated competition with the tremendous improvements from the little guys during the Freshman states this past week, and it would seem Coaches Doyle, Brennan, and Lourenco have a lot about which they can smile, both for the immediate and longer-term future. Great Homecoming weekend all the way around, guys. Let's see if we can wrap the entire fall sports season in Green-and-Gold.

Hawks' Soccer Closes out Regular Slate, Moves to Playoffs as #6 Seed

Coach Johnston said it best Friday afternoon: even though our varsity soccer team was assured, one way or another, of a decent playoff seeding, they couldn't take winless Woonsocket for granted - the Villa Novans would've liked nothing better than to come to our field, win their first game of the season, bump our guys further down the playoff ladder, and on our Homecoming to boot.  Our guys would have to be ready to go.

Our guys came ready to play, knocking off a determined Woonsocket squad in the regular season finale, 2-0, and securing the #6 seed for the upcoming state playoffs.  Goals were scored by Alexander Leite and Christian Leonard, and goalie Dan Escobar tallied five saves. One of our goals can be seen here:  
Niko Spentzos of The Network sat down with Coach J for a brief interview prior to the season's final game:

Stay with The Network for coverage as the state playoffs get underway.

The Only Important Message for Homecoming: PROTECT THIS HOUSE

Yes, the Hawks' express train to what could be an unprecedented four consecutive State Super Bowl titles continued largely unimpeded, although it's clear that the Portsmouth Patriots are a very sound and well-coached football team. 

Yes, Remy Blue continued running the football seemingly at will, causing this writer to honestly wonder aloud during last night's telecast if there actually is a defense in Rhode Island high school football that can even hope to stop him. 

These things are true, and were, coming into the game, somewhat expected. This game was, however, our homecoming game. While many Rhode Island High School football fans are watching this Hendricken team pretty closely for a number of reasons, most of those reasons were - at least to an extent - put on hold last night. Only one thing mattered last night: Protecting the House.

The Hawks came into the game undefeated and ranked #1 in Division 1. They walked off the field in the same manner. 

Remy Blue rushed for 164 yards on seven carries - an astonishing average of 23.4 yards per carry - and scored four touchdowns of 41 ,4, 45, and 63 yards, leading the Hawks to a convincing 41-21 Homecoming victory at Hayden Stadium. Other scores came from a Gary Gibbs's six-yard rush and a beautifully-executed 31-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Pat Gill to Lee Moses. 

Last Friday night, the Hawks faced Cranston East on their home turf, a game that many of the state's football pundits marked as one with serious playoff implications; in what many might say was the Hawks' first real test of the season (though South Kingston and Cranston West might object to that assessment, and understandably so), the Hawks left Cranston Stadium that night as the clearly-acknowledged better team. 

In taking on the Portsmouth Patriots last night - a football program rich in tradition and always a perennial title contender - most people entering Hayden Stadium last night expected to see first-hand if the Hawks' express train to the playoffs could be either challenged or derailed. Truth be told, at the beginning of the game it appeared that this was going to be a serious game, as the Patriots, led by the superb quarterbacking of Matthew Sewall, marched right down the field with relative ease against what had been a staunch and scarily-improving Hawks' defense and took the lead, 7-0. 

Sewall, in fact, threw for that first touchdown and ran for two more himself. 

The Hawks answered that touchdown immediately on Remy's 4-yard rush into the end zone.  

The Hawks went for two after their first score, perhaps anticipating a close game; the conversion failed, resulting in an early 7-6 lead for the Patriots. 

After that, an effective word to describe the Hawks' assuming control of the game is methodical. While it was evident that Portsmouth is a very good team and had no intention of being pushed around, the nature of the Hawks' discipline and their relentless attack on both sides of the ball was, over the longer course of the game, simply too much for the Patriots to withstand. As pointed out, the offense was led by the running of Remy Blue. In addition to that early touchdown, he also crossed the goal line on runs of 41 yards - ...45 yards -
...and, on a play reminiscent of the first one of the second half last Friday night against Cranston East (Gary Gibbs' 60-yard run to the house), Remy took the handoff on the first play of the second half last night and galloped 63 yards to the house himself:  

Gary Gibbs also turned in some quality running for the Hawks during the game, and Matt Duffie even turned in a nifty 31-yard run:  

The Patriots did put 21 points up on the Hawks, but the stellar defense that we've had the opportunity to watch as it has quickly evolved from week-to-week also came up big when it mattered most. The defense stuffed Sewall when he attempted a run around end - ...Lee Moses laid himself out in spectacular fashion for one of his two interceptions (in addtion to his 31-yard TD reception) - ...and the defense came up with another takeaway on a fumble recovery. 
All in all, with the Homecoming victory and the reasonably convincing nature of it, everyone at Hayden Stadium last night who is a part of the Hendricken community went home pretty happy. One would think, however, that Coach Croft and the rest of his staff are probably going to work the team hard in an effort to clean up the number of penalties for which our guys have been flagged over the course of the last two games. 

Other than that, the Express to Four still appears to be on full steam ahead. 

The Hawks are off next week, giving our players and The Network staff a much-needed Friday night off. 

Next up? 

Another of the top teams in Division I - the Barrington Eagles.

The Network will be there.

Freshman XC Hawks Put RI Cross-Country on Notice

One of the old expressions that we've all heard from time to time throughout our lives is, "what a difference a day makes"....or something to that effect.

In the case of our freshman XC runners, it's clearly "what a difference six weeks or so makes."

Coaches Brennan and Lourenco were ecstatic with the performances of their up-and-coming runners in this past Monday's freshman state meet, as our guys not only finished third overall in the meet - competing against high-quality teams such as LaSalle, Smithfield, and East Greenwich - but they also shaved nearly two full minutes off the collective time that they posted in the Injury Fund competition at the beginning of September.  Jeff Venter, Anthony Lanni, Stephen Treml, Russel Hadfield, Daniel Ruggiero, Michael Shaw, and Max Waite were outstanding, as each of them finished in or around the top 50.

Here's a look at the individual times for all our runners, in addition to a visual comparison of just how far the young Hawks have come in such a short period of time:




There's still more season to go, but the future sure does look bright.

Hawks Take the Zap out of the 'Bolts, Move to 5-0


 Since the beginning of the season, many Rhode Island high school football pundits around the state pointed to this game as one of those with serious playoff, if not Super Bowl, implications come the month of December. The three-time defending state champions Hawks - with many returning players from last year's team and on a mission to capture a record fourth title in a row - against the Cranston East Thunderbolts, an extremely talented team that made some real noise last year before bowing out in the state semi-final to the Hawks. 

 The game had all the makings of a real battle, each team trying to send a message to the other. The supremely-confident Hawks with their top-rated defense in the State, against an all-out scoring machine, with the 'Bolts coming into the game averaging an incomprehensible 46 points per game.

 One team got to sent a message. The scoreboard tells the story.

 In many sports, we often hear analysts referring to "crooked numbers", a reference to a development in a game that permanently changes the course and direction of a contest. In baseball, it might be a seven-run inning; in football, it might be numbers or statistics such as these:

 1)in the first half, the Hawks yielded a total of 46 yards of offense to a team that had been making a mockery of their opponents, averaging the aforementioned 46 points per game; 

 2)Remington Blue, a running back who is seemingly so difficult to bring down, so strong, and so fast that one was forced to wonder if it were actually his abilities or East's defense experiencing serious tackling issues, rushed for 187 yards in the first half, after rushing for a total of 118 yards in last week's win over Cranston West;

 3)the Hawks racked up at least four rushing plays of 30 yards or more, rushes that either ended in touchdowns themselves or altered the course of a specific drive that resulted in a touchdown. The most electric of those plays was Remy Blue's 77-yard gallop to the house, which can be see right here:

Remy also crossed the goal line on a six-yard score: Other touchdowns were scored by Terrance Gibbs, on runs of one and three yards, and Gary Gibbs, who, for all intents and purposes, put an end to any hopes to which the 'Bolts might still have been grasping on the first play of the second half: As mentioned, Terrance scored twice, in addition to providing the Hawks with some good tough running throughout the second half. One of his touchdowns and some of his other ground work can be seen right here: While the offensive output was impressive, it was, however, largely the stifling effort of a defense that is growing more and more confident with each passing week. At one point during the second quarter, senior Mike Scarcella came up with a crucial sack that essentially put an end to a promising East drive:

 As alluded to at the top of the article, this was one of the more anticipated schoolboy football matchups of the season. As such, some of the state's mainstream media were in attendance, including WPRI-12 and the Providence Journal. The Journal's photo gallery of the game can be seen here

  And, as is always the case here at The Network, our most recent broadcast event can always be seen in the Ustream viewer at the very top of the site. In this case, it's the entirety of the second half of last night's game against East. The first half, along with all the rest of our broadcast work, can be seen by clicking our Ustream link at the bottom of the page. 

 Next up for our guys is the homecoming game, and we're hoping for a huge turnout Friday night against Portsmouth, traditionally a very strong program and always a tough out. Let's pack Hayden Stadium and support the Hawks on The Road to Four.

BHHS T&F/XC Takes Home Some Hardware from the Manhattan Invitational

There's an old expression in the cross-country community that says, "Champions are made when no one is watching." While that may not be entirely true when it comes to the Hendricken Cross Country program (which is practically legendary), we here at The Network aim to give as many people as possible the opportunity to watch - or at least follow along more frequently - when those champions are being made. 

The past three weekends have been very strong for the XC Hawks, as their performances in New Hampshire, North Carolina, and now most recently at the Manhattan Invitational speak for themselves. This past weekend in Manhattan the Hawks were once again one of the best performing teams in the entire field, as our varsity, JV, sophomore, and freshman teams consistently crossed the finish line with all the top groups in the competition. 

Our varsity runners were the "E" race winners with 74 points, followed by St. Anthony's and Lowell. The Hawks were led senior Colin Tierney's outstanding performance, as he registered the second-fastest time ever run by a Hendricken athlete on the Manhattan course. The varsity squad, in fact, recorded the fastest average time of all the varsity races, with the exception of the Eastern States Championships. Our top JV team finished second in their race and were led by senior Patrick Gower.

The younger guys also acquitted themselves very nicely. The sophomore team finished second, behind only Highland Valley. Domenic Parlato came in third in the race with a fantastic time of 13:48, and he was followed by Tom McMahon at 14:03. On the freshmen front, the "A" team came in 4th in their race with a total of 158 points, and the "B" team finished 11th in the 18-team field and were led by Dario Smith.

Next up for the cross country teams is the championship competitions, as the freshman will be competing in the state championships on October 21st, and the varsity runners will be competing in the Class A championships on October 26th.  It's a pretty good bet that we'll have more hardware coming our way by the end of the month.

Hawks and Falcons Bare the Talons, but the Hawks Move to 4-0

 GAME #4  

Make no mistake about it: the Cranston West Falcons are a very good football team.

Before we delve into the account of the game, let's give a tip of the hat to our Sports Network on a night when most of the facets of our production finally came together.
Anchors Cam Brennan and Stone Freeman continued to be the pros that they are, bringing sound analysis, research, and knowledge to the production.  The voice of the basketball Hawks, Johnathan Feeny, provided stellar assistance by working the social media angle throughout the course of the game, passing along any score updates from around the state via the Tweetdeck service and by keeping all followers of The Network on Twitter and Facebook up-to-date on each of the game's developments.  Max Zweiner also chipped into the production with invaluable sideline assistance by utilizing The Network's Instagram link to record some great moments, which can be seen in this account of the game.  Official team statistician Ben Macksoud also was on stand-by to contribute via Instagram if called upon.  It all went soundly enough that Coach Dan Brennan texted to us during the game that he was able to watch the game from his hotel lobby in Manhattan. All involved did a great job.

Now, as for the game....

Much like the Hawks' season-opening Division I game at South Kingstown, the Hawks knew that they had everything that they could handle after one half of play.  In fact, any objective viewer of the game would have called the game an even struggle by intermission, as the Hawks held a slim 7-3 lead.

Once again, however, much like that South Kingstown game, the Hawks slowly but surely asserted themselves over the course of the second half and won going away, 33-10 - though it should be noted that with about nine minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Hawks led by only three, 13-10.

No one at the game - fans of either team or any of the Hendricken players (who always take each opponent seriously) - should have been surprised, as the Falcons went to the final seconds last Friday night against LaSalle in a game played at Cranston Stadium before losing a tough one, 22-21.  With the loss to the Hawks, the Falcons now drop to 1-4 on the season, but that is as deceiving a record as there possibly can be.  They are much better than their record indicates.

As for our guys, the train that they're attempting to ride to RI schoolboy history - a fourth consecutive State Super Bowl title - remains steadily and smoothly on the rails.  All-State running back Remy Blue continued his weekly game-changing running act, rushing 12 times for 118 yards, including touchdown runs of 41 and 35 yards.  The first of those two gallops can be seen right here:

Quarterback Pat Gill kept the offense sure and steady throughout the course of the night and contributed with a 57-yard scoring strike to Lee Moses and a 16-yard TD run for himself.  Running back Gary Gibbs contributed the other Hawks' touchdown on a seven-yard run.

As the Falcons' ten points indicates, the Hawks' defense was tough over the course of the entire game.  Two outstanding plays can be seen right here:


case you missed it, the entire second half of the game can still be seen right here on The Network, at the top of the site.

Up next for the Hawks are the Thunderbolts of Cranston East, who, along with the Hawks, were one of the pre-season favorites to go all the way.  The 'Bolts walloped East Providence last night, 48-12.  The Hawks will travel to Cranston Stadium to face East next Friday night at 7pm.  At the very least this is a potential preview of a playoff matchup, if not a Super Bowl matchup; of course, there's always our archrival LaSalle who will always be in the mix, and they await our guys for another showdown on November 15th on Academy Avenue.

The Network will be at Cranston Stadium next Friday night.  Let's travel well and support our guys in Game #5.

BHHS T&F/XC Continues to put the "Country" in X-Country

Two weekends, two different parts of America.

Last week, the runners for all three of our teams took home a collection of team and individual awards from their competition at the Manchester Invitational in New Hampshire.  Yesterday, the Hawks' Harriers stayed the course against some of the top runners from the entire east coast at the Great American Cross Country Festival in Cary, North Carolina.

In The Race of Champions Event, the Hawks finished 6th overall as a team and were led by

senior Colin Tierney, who turned in the fastest effort for RI boys by finishing 19th overall at 15:31.  He was followed by fellow Hawks junior Michael Potter (34th at 15:49.8) and sophomore Avery Ingegneri (55that 16:12.6).  The junior varsity A team took home the first-place team trophy in their event, led by senior Colin Manning, who checked in at 17:09 and in 2nd place overall.

Prior to the Hawks' heading out for North Carolina, the Providence Journal produced some nice coverage of our runners.

Some significant tweets from Coach Brennan during Saturday's race:
Coach Brennan had this to say at the conclusion of the race: The - um - 'cross country tour' continues.

Hawks Tame the Tigers, go to 3-0 in D-I Play

To this point, our varsity football squad's road to the Rhode Island schoolboy history books has been fairly smooth.  With the exception of the early-season road contest against a tough and talented South Kingstown squad - which, over the course of the game, ended in a fairly deceiving 36-14 victory for the Hawks - our guys have beaten Division II St. Ray's 34-6, East Providence 38-7, and now Tolman, 40-0.

While offensive line coach Pantaleo pointed out in this week's Hendricken Football Podcast that they expected some of Tolman's defensive fronts to cause some problems for the Hawks, seemingly none of those problems materialized.  The game was for all intents and purposes decided early, as four different Hawks reached the end zone in different ways.

All-State running back Remy Blue crossed the goal line three times, on runs of 66, 5, and 4 yards, in addition to quarterback Pat Gill's ten-yard strike to Mitchell Lucci, Shane Olson's 7-yard rushing TD, and Lee Moses's 57-yard, off-to-the-races punt return for another score.  It was an impressive showing for the Green-and-Gold.

Several of the scores can be seen here.
 Next up for the Hawks is a home game, this coming Friday night, October 11th, against Cranston West.  Kickoff is at 7pm.  Coach Croft, his entire staff, and the entire team no doubt expect a tough one against the Falcons, as they gave archrival LaSalle all they could handle last night, eventually losing a tough one, 22-21 to the Rams.

And, barring any of the early-season technical issues - which have been driving this writer to distraction - The Network will broadcast the game, live, here on the site.

It's it's Time to Talk Baseball w/ Matt & Nick

Okay, a couple of points here...seems as though your truly, the producer, has messed up on the the name of this show.  Let's get this one's the "Talkin' Baseball Show" with Matt Rowlands and Nick Bianco.  Second, it seems as though some technical issues intervened and only half of this show - though broadcast live - actually made it through recording.  Unexpected, but, as Coach Belichek says, "it is what it is."

In any event, Matt and Nick once again made their way through an entertaining hour of discussion on the MLB playoffs, the Red Sox, Matt's likes and dislikes and his dislikes of Nick's likes, get the picture.  You can listen to the show by clicking on the Ustream viewer.  Enjoy.

Follow The Network on Instagram!!

Yet another site has been added to the Network's vast array, as we're now on Instagram.  There's obviously not much there yet, but follow us and there's sure to be lots of Hendi sports photos in a short period of time. Let's build up some followers!

Stone & Z Return

Following an unscheduled week's hiatus, Network anchors (and talk show pros) Stone Freeman and Zach Johnson returned in their usual Tuesday afternoon slot to talk all the current hot topic issues in the sporting world.  Today's topics ranged from the opening night of the NHL season (with the obvious emphasis on the Bruins, especially in light of the typical chatter in the Twitterverse on game nights), to a wrap-up of Week 4 in the NFL, to an in-depth discussion of the quickly approaching MLB playoffs.  You can view the entire show to the right in the Ustream box.  Enjoy.
